Rockin' at the River Run/Walk


Rockin’ At The River is a family friendly Run/Walk. This community event was created last year by Puneet Mathur with a goal of raising awareness and funds for local charitable programs.

This year's funds will help support United Way's Summer Lunch Program, United Way funded after-school programs and mental health services! Every donation to United Way stays in our local community to support people – right here at home. Your support is improving lives locally.

  • Last year, United Way launched the Summer Lunch Program to feed kids in West Windsor throughout the summer when school nutrition programs are closed.
  • 1,100 individuals accessed United Way-funded counselling services across Windsor & Essex County. Your support helped to virtually eliminate a 12-week wait time for counselling services through the creation of walk-in clinics and group counselling programs.
  • Academic support, physical activity, arts & cultural enrichment and healthy snacks are provided to all children & youth participating in United Way-funded After-School Programs. After-School programs are delivered in Harrow, and east, west and central Windsor.
